Businesses gather huge volumes of data, but it's useless if you can't gather valuable insights from it. This normally results in making major decisions based on instinct, rather than having it backed up by data.
Augmented analytics makes use of machine learning and artificial intelligence to analyze and interpret data on a large scale.

Adding alt text
Alt text can be added to images while posting through Social. It helps images get displayed at the top of search engine results page and can also help visually impaired users get the context of an image while using screen readers. You can only add alt text for images that you post on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
